Instantly notify parents with important announcements, upcoming events or updates
Small schools need a school messaging system that can quickly and easily notify parents of upcoming events or updates. In an attempt to solve this problem, schools have created school messaging systems. However, most of them are expensive, time-consuming, cumbersome to use and in several cases, one dimensional (just one feature).
These notification systems are difficult to adopt and expensive, with an initial setup fee along with the integration and service fees. Parents pay approximately $3-$5 per child each year. It also takes time to enroll parents.
Of course, there is always good-old email. But these have issues with delivery, speed and ever-crowded inbox. Most parents are pressed for time in this increasingly mobile world. So a quick and simple text message should be the solution - only if it's an affordable and viable solution.
